George Fitzgerald has remained one of the most reassuringly experimental powerhouses to emerge from the British underground and the authoritative musical sphere known as Hotflush. Still busy at work on his debut artist album, his latest vocal offering “Magnet” emerges to seal the score on a year of considerable highs for this master of the big-kick and befitting low-end tendencies. Taking things down a peg from precursor “I Can Tell,” the patchwork of Fitzgerald’s own harrowing vocal work and that infamous deep yet bass-favoring stamina makes for a more dreamy yet diligent take on the underground house sound scope – a void that this consistent production force has no trouble excelling. Still a vital mark of quality on the popular ‘deep’ renaissance both blessing and cursing global club land, George Fitzgerald articulates the quality house cut to a level we wait to see committed to a full-length album.

Verboten this weekend will feature Four Tet, George Fitzgerald, and James Holden – exceptional talents that somehow are on one billing. We have been excited to see Four Tet ever since his album Rounds, and George Fitzgerald’s new beginnings at Domino Records should be on display. (more…)
Paul Woolford is the first announced to remix George FitzGerald’s late summer jam “I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)” and in the midst of thriving off his “Untitled” success, the multi-genre mainstay extends the original’s 90s house groove a healthy dose of impossibly catchy piano riffs and claps. The original and the remix are due out on October 21st and the package will include a contribution from The Cyclist as well.Posted by
After announcing their StageONE series back in May and putting on two massively successful subsequent shows, Verboten is back at it with their fall StageONE lineups.

George Fitzgerald formally signs to Domino Records, new video and remix package for ‘I Can Tell’ emerges
It’s been a breakneck year for underground kingpin and Hotflush Records favorite George Fitzgerald, who adds to the momentum already mustered with news of his formal signing to Domino Records. Last found behind the wheel of “I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)” for label offshoot Double Six Records, his partnership with Domino will be kick started with a formal remix, accompanied by remix duties from underground peers Breach and Paul Woolford to top off this high-profile signing. As a staple element of his recent back-to-back session with Pete Tong live at BBC Radio One’s Ushuaia takeover, the track sets a strong precedent for his impending debut album, which is slated to hit the digital market in 2014 through the label. Hit more to see Alex Southam’s recent video accompaniment to the single and stay tuned for word of the remix package.
Where the White Isle has continued to play host to some of the biggest nights on the European clubbing calendar, BBC Radio 1 has seldom missed a beat. Cue a rare turn for Pete Tong’s Essential Selection duties, which saw the show transported to Ushuaia Ibiza for part-two of their Ibiza broadcast marathon. With the likes of Rudimental and Alesso already having taken the annual event, all eyes were on Pete to deliver a standout session.
Kicking off another weekly BBC Radio 1 Essential Selection, Pete Tong glides us through the finest in house music from around the globe. This week we are treated to a premiere of Dirty South’s latest song “Until the End,” goody goodies from Apollonia All Stars and a Hot Mix from Ibiza 2012.
Spinning us through his favorite progressive hits at the moment, Pete plays Don Diablo & Matt Nash’s Axtone release “Starlight (Could You Be Mine),” Phazing upcomer Michael Brun’s “Antares,” and Morten Breum’s “Look Closer” out on Ash Pournouri’s label PRMD. Pete’s Essential New Tune went to George Fitzgerald’s lavish deep house track “I Can Tell (By the Way You Move),” replacing last week’s pick of “Isis’ by Hot Natured. Roger Sanchez is knighted into Pete’s Hall of Fame for his numerous contributions to house music over the years, while the UK’s Hot Creations-signed DeMarzo is Pete’s Future Star of the week.

In what is now our second festival of the season with a major weather element introduced on the final day, Day 3 of Movement Electronic Music Festival was dictated by rain — lots and lots of rain. What started off as a light drizzle in the afternoon and early evening, quickly progressed to an all out torrential downpour but this did not stop many fans from braving the elements to enjoy a final day at Hart Plaza. The mood was jovial and celebratory, and for a crowd that was already feeling tight knit on the first days, things got even more communal in the inclement elements.
“Out Of My Head” — the second single of Deetron’s forthcoming album — gets the remix treatment from UK’s George FitzGerald. The rework showcases FitzGerald’s ability to make a track his own, adding stabs of crisp synth work over Ovasoul7′s indie vocal for a truly tasteful progressive outing. The track’s chord progressions are deep and dark, building and building over the looped vocal to allow the listener to explore the boundaries of the five minute track.

There is no doubt Will Saul knows good music. He’s a producer, DJ, label owner, A&R whiz, and has worked with a staggering number of impressive artists in his almost two decades in dance music. Will got his start as nothing more than a passionate record collector (like most of us), and in the years that followed grew from a job at Sony, to his own label Simple Records, and more recently Aus Music.
